The Wolves Women Show Their Bark

A jubilant U15.5 Girls Division 3 Everton Wolves JAFL

Celebrations are in full swing at the Everton Wolves Junior Australian Football League (JAFL) club with their U15.5 Girls Division 3 winning the AFLQ juniors Grand Final last month.

The Grand Final took place on the first weekend in September at the AFLQ Headquarters, Cansdale Street, Yeronga. Despite stiff opposition, the ladies triumphed! 

Last year, due to low numbers, the team was merged with the Ipswich Eagles and they only won 2.5 games. However, this year, with some good recruiting from the players, the club was able to form their own team with nine brand new players to AFL from the squad of 21. They were part of this year’s 30% growth at the Everton Wolves JAFC.

Some of the girls have been playing since 2015 and were part of the first Girls team at Everton in 2016.  Seven of the girls are from the first female team to make finals in 2019.

Charles Tibbitts, President of the Everton Wolves AFL could not be prouder of the clubs all -female team who have worked incredibly hard all year to develop their skills.

‘These girls have shown an amazing camaraderie to become a great group that plays as a team,’ said Charles.

‘The skills have increased week by week and nothing stopped them from training and playing as a group. They are an inspiration to all girls, that anyone can play AFL and all are welcome down at The Den.’

The club trains at the 93 Mott Street, Gaythorne. Players are welcome from ages 8years old to 17 years old.
